I Love Promarkers DT Card - Winter Birthday

We have a new challenge for you today at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Winter Birthday", and we're sponsored by Doctor Digi.
I've used a Gorjuss stamp that I've I have in my collection for quite some time for my DT card, coloured, of course, with Promarkers, she's from a winter collection, but not necessarily Christmassy, making her perfect for a winter birthday card.
 The papers are Lili of the Valley Frosty Christmas and Krafty Christmas, two paper pads which work really well together, I love the colour combo of blue and brown.
The frame for the image was made with a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die, using blue satin board, and the horizontal kraft border was decorated with a starry Tonic border punch to pick out the stars on her dress.  I hand cut a tag from kraft card, stamped a birthday sentiment on with a Personal Impressions stamps, set an eyelet, tied on some baker's twine, then tucked it in behind the topper.
To embellish, I used Sue Wilson Faux Quilled Flower dies to create flowers from white glitter card and leaves from kraft card, added some ribbon and a bow, and finished with some coloured pearls.

 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
